Evil Portent For Rad Trads: Easter Vigil Embers Almost Burn Down Thomas Aquinas College Chapel


The New England campus of Thomas Aquinas College skirted disaster when a fire broke out in their prized chapel early on Easter morning. While the damages sustained to Our Mother of Perpetual Help Chapel meant the venue for Easter services had to change, the structure itself was saved from catastrophic destruction thanks to the fast actions of a priest and the efforts of firefighters. According to a press release, the fire broke out in the sacristy on Easter morning. It is believed that the fire arose due to the embers of incense used in the Easter Vigil services the night before. These smoldering embers sprang back to life when Fr. Greg Markey, Chaplain of the New England campus, arrived to prepare the chapel for Easter. Source
